'Nearly there' was an expression of my mothers - when actually we weren't ! However we are almost there last few parties over the next couple of days and then Christmas Day. Zoe and I have been shopping today for the last few presents for the guests on the day- just need to wrap 80 and then persuade Santa to drop in and hand them round. Looking forward to seeing all the regulars on the day- most have been coming for a long time.
We are now in the full throes of Christmas- as much as you try not to - you do count down the days.
In between 'turkey bashing' we are trying to keep going on other projects. New signage has gone up around the hotel, the guests may now be able to find the toilets and some of the more illusive rooms! We have also named the 3 fouposters. Room 3 is the 'Thurman Room', room 2 is 'Easom room' and room 5 is the 'Colonel Pitt' room. The names are after previous owners of the hotel.
This weekend is a very busy one in Melton. The Victorian Fair is on Sunday and the Christmas tree festival is held in St Marys Church over the weekend. Every year we are going to enter a tree - definitely next year- I just need to put a reminder in the diary for September !
